Almost 20 years after its initial release, the horror film “I Know What You Did Last Summer” is getting a reboot.
The storyline of the original film centered around a group of teenage friends who accidently hit a pedestrian while celebrating on the 4th of July. Of course, since they thought the pedestrian was dead, the group decided to hide the body and never speak of the incident again. All was fine until they – almost a year later – each started to receive ominous letters with the words, “I Know What You Did Last Summer” written on them.
Sony chose Mike Flanagan – who wrote and directed the 2013 horror hit Oculus – to take the helm of the remake. However, on his personal twitter account, Mike Flanagan sent out a tweet stating that he would be writing the script only and not directing or producing.
While the 1997 film starring Jennifer Love-Hewitt was based off the 1973 novel written by Lois Duncan, it varied heavily away from the book. This remake, however, is rumored to stay more true to the novel of the same name then the original film did. Neil Moritz, the producer of the 1997 film, is also said to be attached to the project.
There is no word yet, however, on who is set to star in the reboot.
